Admin. Corner

"Not just this year but every year that I can remember, Vinemont students carry themselves with kindness and respect toward others. Even the new cell phone rules haven't been too big of a deal for our student body. Thank you! There will always be a few out there that just have a terrible outlook or their circumstances get the better of them and tend to have bad attitudes but the vast majority are upbeat and happy. I can honestly say that I feel our students are respectful, hard working, polite, and accepting of others. These are all great attributes and characteristics to have, and I'm proud of our student body and look forward to the rest of this school year. On a closing note, I would challenge all of our students to say something positive to one another daily. Look for the good in each of their peers as they walk the hall and share classes (yes, even be kind to the freshman). Thanks for asking." -Ch Johnson
